In almost 60 years of watching presidential speeches (especially these 'important' ones) I've never, NEVER seen them use such a weird ass background as that. They always are sitting at the presidential desk, or standing at a podium in an important room with the usual 'dead presidents and flags' backgrounds to connote authority, or if you're Roosevelt or Carter, next to a nice warm fire for the fireside chats.
Giving what may be the most important speech of your presidency with an open door behind you (lousy feng shui) and then with the open window behind that !!!! This is inexcusable as set dressing, as showmanship, and as a way to give the speaker some authority and also a sense of being 'safe' behind him.
No way would anyone do it this way, unless they HAD to for some reason...
And yeah, he looks like a clone of a clone of a clone.

btw, official video from the white house shows a little bit different camera angle than the one from the new york times.
the new york times:
the reflection seems normal in the doors both coming/going but, not in the _ it's incorrect coming & going.
In these days of deception, why the doubt? I'm not sure about Project BlueBeam, yet, but if they're gonna get us to believe in a fake alien attack (for example), they're gonna need to do some test runs, to make it look so believable that EVERYONE believes it. That's why, i'm not believing ANYTHING. This way, i'm not fooled into believing something that's not real, later on, down the road.
